Grimes – ‘Oblivion’

Track of the year so far?

Imagine Kraftwerk teaming up with Blondie for a rework of ‘Heart Of Glass’ and performing it several hundred leagues under the sea. That goes some way to explaining the brilliant otherworldliness of Grimes’ new single –celestially pie-eyed with Claire Boucher’s child-like “la la la”s, and feeling genuinely like a vision from the future.
